I've only just started with Quidco but I do like it - trouble is I keep forgetting to go on there when I'm buying anything!

Does anyone know a good energy saving company? One of my clients is spending nearly £500 per month on gas and electricity for a normal 4 bedroomed detached property - and she has had all of her meters checked out as being accurate. I thought my bills were high!

We use Atlantic Gas and Electricity for our house which is a four bed detached.

We pay £83 and £87 respectively.

How do you go about getting them to look at taking you on Jan? Do they need to visit the property, or is it all done over the phone?

I went via U Switch and it was all done over the internet I think.

You could certainly do it by phone.

Hi Mel
You can go on www.confused.com and compare prices for utility providers.
I changed recently and saved 30 pounds a month with 70 pound cash back

Exactly! Payplan try to save their clients money, but whatever you save will be paid to the creditors.

But they are probably getting a big fat commission out of all of the new products they are selling Jan!

Kallis3, I`m actually with British Gas for both my leccy and gas so I guess it`s only a matter of time before they close my account...Are Atlantic IVA friendly then?

Gosh and I've been moaning about our utility bills!! Thats shocking We're with atlantic too. Not had any problems with them either. We pay 88 and 89 per month.Been with them a few years now. Also have just agreed to change phone lines with them from BT. As they are apparently £3 cheaper a month for the same service we recieve. We shall see.

They won't boot you out completely, they have a habit of closing an account and then opening you up a new one. Don't ask me why!

I've been with Atlantic for a number of years now and do find them one of the better ones I've been with. If we are accosted by an EON salesperson anywhere and tell them who we are with, they usually tell us that they can't do any better.

I've no idea what they are like with IVAs. We've never heard anything from them about it, you can but give them a try.

Struzzo, they did phone me to try and get me to change the phone, but we're in the process of changing both broadband and phone across to Sky, and that is a lot cheaper than BT.
